I am delighted that three people responded to my challenge to blog about literacy. Not only did that earn them an extra entry in my giveaway of Emma Walton Hamilton’s book Raising Bookworms, but it reached more people with an important message. One person posted (different posts) on both her blogs!

I want to give a shout-out to those people who blogged about literacy this week. If there are others whom I’ve missed, please let me know in the comments, and I’ll add your link to this post (and your entry to the barrel!)

And it’s not too late – it’s always time to talk about getting children (and adults) to love reading, and if you post (and let me know) either today, Saturday January 28, 2012, or tomorrow Sunday January 29, 2012, you’ll get another chance at the giveaway.

Thank you to

What do you suggest as a way to encourage kids (or adults) to find joy in reading?
